law, and judge declined says it is a recommendation. the top general said the u.s. could expand its presence in iraq to help fight isil, and mark desmy said is for lilly pads jumping off points, where troops could be closer to the frontline, that could include a corridor, over to mosul, and the white house was cool to the idea of increasing the number of bases, without first seeing some success. there's no immediate plan to do this. what i will say though, if a kind of recommendation like this did come from the president's national security team and military advisers, it would be a recommendation that is made, that reflects that the on the going training efforts have been useful. general dempsey opposes
